Poetry. "Chloe Honum's brilliant first book THE TULIP-FLAME traces an identity forming within radically divergent but interlocking systems: a family traumatized by the mother's suicide, a failed relationship, the practice of ballet, a garden. Honum in every case transfigures emotion by way of elegant language and formal restraint."—Claudia Emerson
